Exploring the Windy City

Hello from Chicago! :)


I had an awesome day today exploring this beautiful city!


First stop? Deep dish pizza (obviously!) with Chandra, Katy, Megan, and Gracie! :)

With salad. Gotta balance the pizza ;) The pizza was AMAZING, by the way.


I spent the rest of the day exploring the city with Chandra. :) Enjoy the photos!

Love that there is a beach… right next to the city.

We seriously walked like 600 miles today. (Mostly because we kept getting lost… heh). We’re chilling at the hotel now and off to the Healthy Living Summit cocktail hour in a bit, where the fun continues!

Have a great night, friends!

    It is fun seeing all of the HLS bloggers checking in. Have a blast!
    Do you know if there will be a live stream like the one that I read about at last year’s?

    Was the water cold at the beach? I suppose it probably would have felt good considering the heat in the MidWest right now. Or, so I hear. Here in Cali, it’s been pretty cool.

    The pizza looks amazing. I really miss the pizza in the MidWest. No where else like it.

    I agree with Laurie (above). It is interesting to see all of you bloggers checking in with all of the fun and exciting things you are doing in the awesome city of Chicago, which i’m proud to call home. Giordano’s was a good choice for your deep dish. It is one of my favorites. Glad to see you all are having an awesome time!

    Have fun. You are so fortunate to travel and to actually like doing it.
    Pizza looks good, although, I prefer thin crust. But if I were there, I would certainly dig in.

    Looks like a blast! What’s with all the bikes?

    Hi Annie P! I found your blog through Oh She Glows – your tee shirt is too cute – and though I’d stop by to say high. I look forward to reading more about HLS (and hopefully seeing more amazing photos like that pizza!). Have fun in Chicago!

    Looks like you are having a blast! I love Chicago it’s such a beautiful city! That pizza looks intense. I have always been a thin crust girl personally but you gotta try the local specialties!

    Love the photos! Chicago is one of my favorite places!!

    I didn’t make it to Healthy Living Summit this year {boo}, so I’m blog stalking those who went so I can soak up all the photos and stories, LOL.

    First time to your blog and am LOVING it! Found you from OhSheGlows and just had to come check out the t-shrts… the one you were wearing that says “I take pictures of my food” is adorable!! Will definitely be purchasing one!

    Can’t wait to read around more :)

    Happy weekend!

    My CO is from Chicago and got a kick out of seeing the photos of his hometown! He used to work on a party boat on the river that you see in so many of the photos. Hope you had a fun time there, and have a safe trip back!

    I’m so glad you had fun in Chicago! I’m in NYC for the month and miss my home, so these pictures made me really happy! It’s SUCH a great city, especially in the summer.
